Re: Creature from the black lagoon WITH JAZZ
Thanks for the info. I found that out from the program, where it said special thanks to Universal Pictures.. but thanks for letting me know anyway, I appreciate it.
The movie turned out to be MUCH more fun than I thought.
Heres the rundown on the fun:
It was a 3-d version of the movie, a very clean print.
The Jazz Band was the Jazz Passengers
The movie was done entirely without the movie soundtrack. All sound including sound effects/foley, dialogue, and score were played and performed live. The dialog was an entirely original composition, yet seemed to be synchronised perfectly to the film. The Jazz portions were mostly in between the dialog, and the dialog was hilarious. The music was original as well.
Roy Nathanson on Saxophone, as musical director and voice of 'Mark Williams'
Curtis Fowlkes on Trombone, as musical director, and the voice of 'Dr. Maia'
Bill Ware on vibraphone and as the voice of 'the Creature'
Brad Jones on bass guitar, and as voice of 'Dr. David Reed'
E.J.Rodriguez, drums and voice of 'Capt. Lucas'
Sam Bardfeld on violin, as 'Dr. Thompson'
Eileen Weiss on guitar and as the voice of 'Kay'
Norman Yamada Conducting, visible in silouette in the lower left corner of the screen, ala Mystery Science Theater...
and Hugo Dwyer, on the mixing board, and cd player.
As the original movie posters said "Not since the beginning of time has the world beheld terror like this!"
Did I say it was funny as hell?
JAZZ PASSENGERS were founded in 1987 by Roy Nathanson and Curtis Fowlkes, the met in the band of the BIG APPLE CIRCUS, toured with THE LOUNGE LIZARDS...
Theres more, but I'm typing with a bad arm, so...
